We are so often like the couple who took a cruise on an ocean liner. They used all their money for the ticket and couldn’t afford to eat in the dining room of the ship. They brought some cheese and crackers and survived on that. Later they discovered that the meals were included in the price of the fare.
The Holy Spirit is God. Everything that God is, He is.
The Holy Spirit lives in you. Everything that He is, is available to you.
The Holy Spirit regenerates us – John 3:5
Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.
The Holy Spirit sanctifies us – 2 Thessalonians 2:13
… God chose you as the firstfruits to be saved, through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth.
The Holy Spirit helps us – Romans 8:26
Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.
Have a great day, and keep moving forward!
